TELECOMWORLDWIRE-August 10, 2012--Equinix's newest Australian facility receives LEED Gold certification(C)1994-2012 M2 COMMUNICATIONS

Global data centre services provider Equinix, Inc. (NASDAQ: EQIX) has been awarded the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Green Building Rating System Gold Certification for its high building standards by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for phase one of its SY3 facility located in Mascot, Sydney.

LEED was developed by USGBC in 2000 and provides building owners and operators with a framework for identifying and implementing practical and measurable green building design, construction, operations and maintenance solutions. It takes into account factors such as energy savings, water efficiency and CO2 emissions reduction.

Phase one of Equinix's third Sydney International Business Exchange data centre, known as SY3, was completed in 2011 and was built to LEED standards. Phase two of the building project will be completed in Q3 2012 and has been built to the same standards as phase one. Work will then start on phase three of the project.

"This award acts as a testament to the ongoing commitment from Equinix to build to the highest standards and strengthens its position as a leader in the data centre industry," said Tony Simonsen, managing director of Equinix Australia. "Our aim is to continue to raise these standards, ensuring we are as efficient and green as possible while keeping our customers' energy consumption and costs down."
